This Hotel Made Our Day Apr 28, 2010
We traveled through Europe for about 15 days before we got to Florence. Our first 10 days were at budget hotels on a Contiki tour. The other days were camping in Italy. So finally we decided to stay in a hotel with a nice bed and a shower that wasn't full of spiders. We went to a cafe and found a good deal on this hotel and booked and began walking there.

When we arrived we went into our room. There was no view at all, but it was less than a 1 minute walk to the Duomo and not much further to Ponte Vecchio and Piti Palace. National Gallery was also just down the road.

We decided this would be a relaxing night to get intoxicated. So we began our drinking on the rooftop patio overlooking the duomo. Sure the view wasn't the best, but it was decent enough. The weather was great. We had beers and wine. We eventually drank all of the beer and wine the hotel had in stock. Now before you think we are alcoholics there was only about a dozen beer and two bottles of wine, so for us Canadians that is a nice comfortable buzz. While sitting on the rooftop the Eagles song came on Hotel California. Followed by some nice mellow Italian music. Very great atmosphere.

After our previous low budget accomodations this sleep was amazing. I slept in while my wife went for breakfast. She said it was decent. It will definitely be where we stay next time in Florence.

Hotel California Florence Overview

The Hotel California is situated on the second floor of a historic building in a central street, via Rissole, the same street where is the Michelangelo's David Museum. Recently refurbished, it is very peaceful and comfortable and the surroundings fully reflect the atmosphere of renaissance Florence. A witness to this fact is that many of the bedrooms and public rooms are steel original ornaments, frescoes and stuccowork of the period. The 22 rooms, in Florentine style, are spacious and luminous and provided with air condition, telephone TV-SAT and safe. The bathrooms, with normal bathtub, with Jacuzzi or with shower, are in white Carfare marble and they are provided with hair-dryers. The rooms with view on the Cupola of the Duomo are particulary romantic as it is the breakfast served on the roomy garden-terace. Internet connection directly from the hotel and garage available near the hotel at favorable price. Contact the hotel about rates and special offers. Bar, doctor on call, laundry service, non-smoking rooms, pets allowed, reception, restaurant, room service - 24, safe deposit box and tour desk. Breakfast included.
